Just so perfectly sweet… this Pastel Snowflake Cake would be gorgeous for any winter party!
I love pastel colored sweets all year round, and winter is no exception!
As much as I love traditional Christmas colors, there is something extra special about pastels.
Of course… you are welcome to use the general techniques and designs from this cake and have fun with any color theme you want!
This cake starts with my perfect chocolate cake recipe, delicious cream cheese frosting, and then is topped with buttercream frosted cookies… YUM!
This recipe was created in partnership with Challenge Dairy.

The star of this cake is large snowflake cookies decorated with buttercream frosting.
As you know if you’ve spent any time on my site before… I most often decorate cookies with royal icing.
As much as I love the detail that can be achieved with royal icing… it’s hard to beat the flavor and soft texture of buttercream!
I made a batch of my favorite buttercream frosting (recipe below) and piped it onto the cookies using a small open star tip.
